It was a memorable dinner at the Private Cocoon. The food was great from start to the end, each was unique and worth raving about. Ambience was romantic as it was facing Ayung Ayung River. Service was impeccable with Agus as our private server. He...takes his job with pride and explain everything in detail. Keep up the great work!More

My friend and I stay at Mandapa for 1 night and knew we had to take this chance to dine at Kubu. Kubu in Indonesian for Hut or Shelter, where Balinese farmers keep their rice after harvesting habitually. This word inspired Mandapa to use bamboo...throughout its restaurant's architecture and decor. They are famous for being situated right next to the Ayung River and their Modern-European cuisine. They have two seatings: 7pm and 9.30pm. By the time we arrived at 7pm, the sun was just about to set and we were surprise to see our table upgraded to a Cocoon. We opted for their signature 8-course degustation menu and enjoyed every single dish. Ana (Director of F&B), Gus (F&B Manager) and Chef Bayu (Executive Chef) visited our table multiple times to make sure we were well fed and if we needed anything. We were not allowed to leave the restaurant without a food coma! I'd say I especially enjoyed the Grilled Black Cod and the Grilled Wagyu Rib Eye very much, but our favour part of the dish was the mini head of Romaine Lettuce, Anchovies and Parmesan Cheese that came with the beef. It was so darn good that we dared to beg the chef for the recipe. It was like eating a warm Caesar salad in every bite. They should have that as a dish on its own! I'd love to bring my parents and partner here on my next visit to Mandapa. The food and service is great!More

My boyfriend and I ate here to celebrate my birthday. Truly one of the most unforgettable, amazing meals I will ever have. The location and setup of the restaurant was amazing, right by the Ayung River in a little "nest". They only have 9 of...these nests, each one right by the river so there's always an amazing view from each one. We both chose "The Essential" menu and were stuffed by the end. The food was amazing, we especially loved the Grilled Wagyu Ribeye and the Chocolate Cappuccino dessert. They even gave me a special birthday cake which was a nice touch. A bit pricey but definitely worth it considering the quality of the food and the location. You cannot get this anywhere else. Would highly, highly recommend!More

The location feels very exclusive and so exotic. There is no marking from the main road to the Ritz Carlton, we drove into this tiny road following google map direction. At the gate, a security guard politely asked where we are heading to and whether...we have made a prior reservation. Later on, we got a ride by a golf cart heading down the hill to the bottom of a canyon where Kubu is located at, next to Ayung River. Immediately we’re greeted by my name and taken to our cocoon table. Very very romantic and stunning place. The food and wine pairings are fantastic as well. Very well balanced. Love this dinner!!! Eventho it’s outdoor- we didn’t find any mosquitoes issue.More
